Daily Inspiration: Meet Cordarrius Green

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cordarrius Green.

Hi Cordarrius, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
From the time that I was 12 years old, I knew that I wanted to be a chef. I always found great joy in seeing which ingredients paired well with what, in order to make a great dish. Throughout high school and early adult years, I got away from wanting to go the traditional route of working in a restaurant and things of that nature. And sure enough… like a long-lost love, I found my way back to food during the pandemic. My goal was to empower the novice and show how cooking can be simplified and fun. I attribute the growth of my following to sheer passion for what I do, persistence, and a willingness to learn and constantly grow.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I would say that my road to where I am now has been one of several ups and downs. It’s been less than a year, but it took me what seems to be a while to find my exact niche. Believe me, when I tell you tried TONS of things in food to find my sweet spot. In addition, I also had to sacrifice tons of free time by working tirelessly around my job. Some of the struggles that I encountered would be the initial hump of getting started, dealing with doubt from your inner circle, being that I chose to take a road less traveled, and also lack of media experience.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I consider cord and the kitchen to be my profession. My brand is predicated around teaching others to cook simple meals and to have fun. I host a virtual cooking classes, post YouTube videos each week, and have multiple cookbooks out. I am most known for my reactions to my own food and slapping counters at the end of my videos. Most importantly, I feel what sets me apart is my unique perspective in my voiceovers for my videos. Often times I talk about things going on in black culture, relationship things, or anything that the average person can relate to.

We’d be interested to hear your thoughts on luck and what role, if any, you feel it’s played for you?
I personally feel that “good luck” has almost very little to do with how things typically go. Sure there may be times where something can freakishly happen like winning the lottery, and that’s what I consider to be “luck.” But typically, I think people see luck as someone who got their shot or opportunity to do something big, and they may not know the full backstory of how much preparation and hard work went into that.
